At West Exe School we have high expectations of our students appearance, this starts with the uniform that they wear around the school, in Physical Education and extends to their use of makeup and jewellery. Our school uniform combines smartness with functionality and durability. Students are expected to wear their full uniform with pride, this includes on their way to and from school. Full details of the school’s policies and expectations relating to uniform can be obtained from the documents below.

Purchasing/Ordering Uniform

We are pleased to have moved all our uniform purchasing online. This can be purchased from Price & Buckland. Parents can purchase other items such as shirts and trousers for both boys and girls from any retailer. We advise parents/carers to pay particular attention to the uniform details on the documents at the bottom of this page, as only the specified items will be acceptable. Orders over £60 will be posted to a home address or school for free (although we strongly advise using your home address rather than the School address). Please use the sizes charts carefully before ordering, as returns are £5.50.

If you have the old version of the logo on your jumper, We are not expecting parents to replace the jumper or cardigan until they are ready to do so.

Summer and Winter Rules:

West Exe have Summer and Winter uniform rules. Students will be expected to wear their jumper/cardigan around school at all times, however students can ask to remove this during lesson time. Girls will also be expected to wear tights with their skirt in the winter.  Summer rules will run for the summer term and any warm days outside these dates will be declared as ‘hot weather rules’.
